Global Immigration Services

We Don't Have To Like It

June 26, 2011, Medellin, Colombia: Ever-more-invasive global immigration procedures make it nearly impossible to live a private life.

Dear Overseas Opportunity Letter Reader,

Through the airport and on to the plane without incident in Panama on-time arrival in line at Immigration...

Remarkably painless...and then...

"Did they have those machines last time we came through?" I asked Lief as we approached the Immigration counter.


How To Purchase Property Overseas

I Knew Better...

June 24, 2011, Medellin, Colombia: The key to success buying property overseas is planning ahead.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I make the point for you often, and I've learned the lesson myself many times over the years. Still, somehow, I managed to forget this important fundamental myself...and, this week, I'm paying for it.


Offshore Banking

How And Why To Open A Bank Account Offshore

June 23, 2011, Panama City, Panama: An offshore bank account serves many important functions, but, in the current global climate, it can be near-impossible for an American to open one.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Offshore Banking In Uruguay

How Uruguay Stacks Up

June 22, 2011, Montevideo, Uruguay: Uruguay remains one of the world’s top retirement and offshore havens.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I visited Uruguay for the first time 26 years ago at the tender age of 22. I was just starting out covering this live and invest overseas beat and had, frankly, no idea what I was doing. Lucky for me, therefore, that the Uruguay government arranged a travel companion for this first press trip of my career, the most recognized and seasoned retire overseas writer at the time, Jane Parker. Jane was researching the Uruguay chapter of the book she was writing; I was along for the ride.


How To Go Offshore

Top Three Threats To Your Wealth And How To Defend Against Them

June 21, 2011, Panama City, Panama: The best protection against rising taxation, currency fluctuation, and frivolous litigation is diversifying your assets offshore.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Your wealth is affected by all sorts of things that you likely feel you have no control over.

But you do have a card to play. By going offshore, you get to hold on to more of your assets, more of your business' assets, and more of the assets you intend for your heirs, to protect these assets so that they grow safely, even tax-free.
